MIDWEST LIVESTOCK REVIEW

and

RANGE AND FEEDLOT SALES


Prices on slaughter steers and heifers ad-
vanced at most midwest markets in a reaction
from the previous week's downturn, with higher
prices for steer and heifer beef also an influ-
encing factor. Slaughter steers closed steady
to 500 higher with sales at Chicago 754-$1.50
higher; heifers sold steady to 25# higher,
except weak to 25# lower at Omaha and Sioux
Falls. Cows were uneven, steady to 500 higher,
except weak to 500 lower at St. Paul. Stockers
and feeders were active, steady to strong, in-
stances 500 up. Barrows and gilts closed gener-
ally steady to 500 higher. The general price
trend on slaughter lambs was steady to 50O
lower, instances $1.00 off.

SLAUGHTER CATTIE AND CALVES Slaughter
steer prices responded to a higher trend on
carcass beef at major wholesale meat centers
and a moderate decrease in the number of steers
sold out of first hands at the 7 markets. The
price advance was of moderate proportions but at
most points large enough to offset declines of
the previous week. Slaughter steers were gener-
ally steady to 500 higher with Choice and Prime
showing the greatest upturn in most cases. In
Chicago, where steers underwent a sharp price
decline the previous week, prices were 750-$1.50
higher. Slaughter heifers sold steady to 250
higher except weak to 25# lower at Omaha and
Sioux Falls. Cows were steady to 500 higher at
most major markets, but St. Paul showed a weak
to 500 lower trend with increased supplies the
bearish factor. Bulls were steady to 500 higher.
Vealers closed steady at St. Paul and St. Louis
National Stockyards. Slaughter steers and heif-
ers continued to predominate in the receipts at
most terminals with bulk of these Good and
Choice. Prime steers were in rather limited
supply at most points, although slaughter steer
receipts at Chicago included 17 percent Prime.
Load Prime 1250# slaughter steers sold
at $27.00 in Chicago where Choice and Prime
steers bulked at $23.50-26.75. At other points
loadlots of high-Choice and mixed Choice and
Prime steers largely 900-1300# sold from $24.50-
25.75; load high-Choice 1470# steers brought
$22.50 in St. Joseph and load mixed Choice and
Prime 1640# $23.75 in Chicago. Bulk of the
mixed Good and Choice steers brought $23.00-
24.00 with some high-Choice 1000-1100# steer
yearlings to $26.00 in Chicago. Most Good
steers sold at $21.50-23.75; Standard and low-
Good $18.00-21.50. Loadlots of high-Choice and
mixed Choice and Prime slaughter heifers sold at
$23.50-24.75 while most Choice heifers brought
$22.00-24.00. Good heifers cashed at $20.25-
22.50. Utility and Commercial cows sold from
$13.00-16.00; Canners and Cutters $10.50-14.00.


STOCKER AND FEEDER CATTLE AND CALVES -
Shipments of stocker and feeder steers and
calves from the 10 markets totaled 75,400 head,
compared to 76,100 the previous week and 86,700
a year earlier. Calves comprised slightly more
than 50 percent of the current week's total.
Good to high-Choice offerings made up a large
percentage of the supplies. Many were from
western and northwestern mountain areas. Re-
ceipts included a large number of 550-700#
yearlings and a fairly liberal supply of 800-
1000 two-year-old steers, but feeder steers
over 1000# were in very moderate supply. Trading
at midwest markets was generally brisk at steady
to strong prices, instances 500 higher. South-
western markets often displayed a stronger price
trend and at Denver prices were 25-500 higher
with instances 750 higher on fleshy 800-1000#
steers. This marked the fourtn consecutive week
in which prices have tended higher. Good and
Choice calves along with the same grades of 500-
650# yearlings have attracted the broadest
demand in recent weeks. However, the price
spread between these and comparable grades of
heavier weights is not as wide as during the
same period a year ago.
Shipment Choice 537# stock steers brought
$26.50; majority Good and Choice 550-75Q0
$22.00-26.00. Many Choice 600-700# sold at
$25.00-26.00 and 4 loads of 75Q0# were included
at $25.00. Medium and low-Good stockers bulked
at $19.00-22.00 with a few Medium $18.00 and
load lots of mixed Common and Medium sold from
$17.00-17.50. Good and Choice 800-1050# feeder
steers ranged from $20.50-24.25. Several loads
900-925# were included at $24.00. Few Choice
525-550# heifers brought $23.75, bulk Good and
Choice yearling heifers $21.00-23.25. Load lots
Choice and Fancy stock steer calves sold from
$30.50-33.00 and a part load of Fancy Club calves
reached $35.00. Good and Choice steer calves
cashed at $24.00-30.00. Good and Choice heifer
calves bulked at $21.00-27.00, several loads
Choice and Fancy $27.50-28.00.

HOGS Terminal Markets Receipts at the
12 markets were little changed from the previous
week, but fell 27 percent short of the correspond-
ing week a year ago. Supplies were largely ship-
ment's of mixed U. S. 1-3 180-250# barrows and
gilts, with 200-25Q0 predominating at western
Corn Belt centers. The average weight of barrows
and gilts at the 8 markets was 226#, same
as in the previous week or a year earlier.
Relatively moderate marketing in the aggregate,
along with higher wholesale dressed pork prices
were factors influencing a higher trend on live
hogs. Trading during the period was quite uneven
and marked by rather sharp price fluctuations.








Sharp price declines on Thursday failed to off-
set upturns other days and closing prices on
barrows and gilts were generally steady to 50#
higher, instances 750 up at St. Louis and Indian-
apolis. However, prices closed steady to 250
lower at St. Paul. Sows were unevenly steady to
75 higher except steady to 25 lower at Indian-
apolis, St. Paul and Omaha.
At the close U. S. 1 and 1-2, and at some
points uniform in weight U. S. 1-3, 190-240#
barrows and gilts bulked at $16.85-17.50, while
at Indianapolis, U. S. 1-2, 190-235' brought
$17.50-18.00. Mixed U. S. 1-3 and 2-3, 180-270'
brought mostly $16.50-17.25 with an extreme
range of $16.25-17.75. U. S. 1-3, 270-600# sows
sold late at $15.00-15.75, some U. S. 1-2, 250-
330# $16.00-16.25.
Prices on feeder pigs closed strong at
Sioux City and strong to 500 higher at St. Paul.
Good and Choice 130-160# closed at largely $16.00
at St. Paul, while same grades and weights at
Sioux City bulked at $15.50-16.00, few Choice
$16.25-16.60.
Average cut-out value advantage of U. S.No.
1 over No. 3 live basis 200-220# barrows and
gilts was 96# per cwt. based on wholesale carlot
prices of fresh pork cuts at Chicago October 20
to October 26, 1960 inclusive.
HOGS Interior Iowa-Southern Minnesota
Area Receipts were around 4 percent more
than the previous week, but 11 percent less than
the same week a year earlier. Prices worked
around 500 higher through Wednesday, but Thurs-
day's decline erased the advance and left
Friday's gains representing the week's upturn.
Closing prices on 180-220# butchers were 10# to
mostly 250 higher with heavier weights 25-300
higher; sows 10-350 higher. Mixed U. S. 1-3
200-240# barrows and gilts sold late at $16.00-
16.65, and moderate supply No. 1-2 $16.75-17.00.
Mixed U. S. 1-3 sows 270-400# brought $14.25-
15.90, U. S. 2-3 400-55C# $12.35-14.65.

SHEEP AND IAMBS Receipts of sheep and
lambs at the 12 markets were slightly increased
over the previous week and 6 percent more than
a year earlier. Prices on slaughter lambs
worked lower at most terminals with the down-
turns influenced by lower prices in the dressed
trade. Slaughter lambs were unevenly steady to
750 lower, instances $1.00 off. Slaughter ewes
were largely steady, instances 500 higher;feeder
lambs steady at most markets but 25-500 lower at
Denver and St. Paul and steady to 500 higher at
Fort Worth.
Late sales Choice and Prime 85-115# wooled
slaughter lambs brought $17.00-18.00 and sparing-
ly to $19.00 at Chicago; Good and Choice $16.00-
17.50. Choice and Prime 90-]13# shorn slaughter

pelts brought $17.00-17.75, a limited volume

$17.50 at Omaha. Good and Choice native feeders
$14.50-15.50, Medium and Good $12.50-15.00. Two
loads Good and Choice 104# yearling breeding
ewes $15.00 per head at Denver.
Sheep and lamb receipts in the Interior
Iowa-Southern Minnesota area were slightly less
than a week earlier, but 6 percent over a year
ago. Demand was only fair for the rather liber-
al marketing. Slaughter lambs were 250 to
fully 500 lower, instances $1.00 off; slaughter
ewes steady. On Friday, Choice with some Prime
80-105# wooled and shorn slaughter lambs with
mostly No. 1 pelts sold at mainly $17.00 de-
livered to packing plants; Choice and Prime
selected lots brought $17.25-17.50; Choice and
Prime 105-115# $16.00-17.25; Good and Choice
80-110# $15.00-17.00; Utility and Good $12.50-

WHOLESALE MEAT TRADE REVIEWS


LESS THAN CARLOT MEAT TRADE REVIEWS

EASTERN SEABOARD Trading was moderately
active at Eastern Seaboard markets with supplies
of all classes about normal, except pork volume
moderate. Clearance was generally complete, ex-
cept for a small carryover of beef hindquarters
at some points. Demand for all classes was
generally good, however, pork prices followed a
very uneven pattern throughout the week.
Steer beef closed steady to weak, instances
500 lower at Baltimore; cow beef mostly steady;
veal and calf steady to weak with prices weak to
$2.00 off at Philadelphia. Lamb sold steady to
$2.00 lower. Pork cuts were mostly steady, ex-
cept at New York where loins and fresh skinned
hams sold $1.00-2.00 higher with other pork cuts
steady to $1.00 higher while at Philadelphia all
pork cuts sold fully $1.00 off. Demand for
kosher beef, veal and calf was good with prices
steady. However, demand for kosher lamb fore-
saddles was poor with prices fully $1.00 lower.

CHICAGO Supplies of beef, veal and lamb

BOSTON WOOL MARKET REVIEW


Trading on greasy domestic worsted wools
in the Boston wool market was moderate as
prices tended firm. The principal demand was
in medium wools with a modest interest in
other grades. Moderately active trading also
prevailed on woolen wools and noils, with
prices steady to firm but sales of woolen wools
were restricted.
There were occasional sales of mostly fine
wools in the territory States and Texas with
sales limited in the fleece wool States, as
supply was limited.
Midweek cables from Australia showed
prices firm with Russia dominating and sup-
ported by the Continent and Japan. In South
Africa the markets were very firm under general
competition while general competition was
reported in New Zealand with coarse cross-bred
wools selling firm. Trading at South American
markets was slow with a small volume of carpet
type wools sold to the United States.
Fleece Wools Graded 60/62s good French
combing and staple fleece wools sold around
$1.00-1.02 clean basis while 50/54s staple
wools brought $1.05 and low quarter-blood
fleeces, grading 46/48s, brought 95-960. Small
accumulations of fine and half-blood burry and
seedy fleece wools sold around $1.00-1.02 while
medium burry and seedy wools brought about 980
clean basis.
Territory Wools Graded territory 50/54s
staple wool sold at $1.07 clean basis. A good
sized clip of bulk fine, good French combing
and staple wool in original bags sold at
sealed bid in Wyoming at 36.070 to the grower
and was estimated to cost around $1.06-1.08
clean basis, delivered.
Texas Wools Original bag average 12
months good French combing and staple wool
sold in Texas around $1.10 to mostly $1.12
clean basis delivered Boston while delaine
type 12 months Texas wools brought around
$1.15 clean basis, delivered.
Mohair Occasional small lots of mohair
sold in Texas at 7640 for adult and $l.11*
for kid hair to the warehouse while trading
was very slow in the Boston market.
Foreign Wools Movement of spot foreign
wools continued slow. Cabled reports from all
Dominion auctions indicated firmness in all
qualities as follows with combing wools con-
verted to clean U. S. oil-combed yields and
short wools to scouring yields, in bond.
